Course Description

Dr. Maria Nieto is co-author of The Spectrum of Sex: The Science of Male, Female, and Intersex, a book that breaks down current understandings of sex and gender diversity and offers new, scientifically based ways of looking at them.  

It challenges, in particular, the myth that sex and gender are exclusively binary.  While not everyone accepts this scientifically grounded premise, Dr. Nieto works to create a safe environment, built on well-grounded science, for frank and open discussion about how best to accommodate the diversity of human sex traits and the gender identies in society.  OLLI and Dr. Nieto hope you’ll take part in the conversation.
